Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown Delayed to 2023, Last-Gen Versions Dropped

Publisher Nacon has delayed Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown to 2023 after it was planned to release this year. Additionally, the game’s PS4 and Xbox One versions have been dropped too, meaning the open-world racing game will now launch only on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown, the anticipated return of the Test Drive Unlimited series, was previously slated to release in September 2022. Nacon has now chosen to delay the game into next year in order to give the developers, Kylotonn and KT Racing, more time in development.

Nacon’s full statement on the delay reads:

“…[T]he most important bit of news is that the game will now be releasing in 2023. With so much support from fans of the series, we know many of you will be disappointed, but our goal with Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown is to make it the most polished gaming experience in the franchise by spending more time on its development.”

It’s unknown if the Nintendo Switch version will also be cancelled, but we expect the announcement might happen soon.

Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown is the long-awaited return of the Test Drive Unlimited racing series, which was among the first open-world racers on older generation consoles to push massive worlds and unending freedom. This laid the foundations for games like the Forza Horizon series.

Solar Crown will transport players to the enormous Hong Kong Island and offer them an assortment of cars to drive around the open-world, partaking in missions and races. We have yet to get a proper deep dive of the gameplay, but we imagine Nacon wants to get it right and make sure it looks great before launch.

Warner Bros. Montreal also dropped the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Gotham Knights, meaning it’s becoming increasingly difficult for developers to make games for last-gen consoles now.
